Re: ERSKY9X on Taranis

Hi MikeB,

I saw you've made some positive modifications to OpenTX r2940 with the bootloader and countdown and I'm wondering why not commit these changes to the OpenTX github ?

Re: OpenTX - Nightly builds for pre-2.0 testing

Hi, make PCB=TARANIS TRANSLATIONS=FR HELI=NO. The others are now defined by default in the makefile (see around line 640 for next).

Re: OpenTX - Nightly builds for pre-2.0 testing

I will run a test for this. I have checked the code and timer is big enough uint16 which means 65535 seconds = more than 18 hours. Are you sure you didn't cause a timer stop yourself?

Re: Trim settings so that it follows on other flight modes

Hi, The correct way to set different rates in OpenTX is to do so in the input or sticks tab, where you can also assign them to flight modes. I've not seen your setup but I think you've used mixes in mixes tab so your trim is dependent of the weight set in your different mixes, that's why it is chang...

Re: D4R-II Battery Voltage

Hi,

@schome1 :
The D4R-II receiver does not support Smart Port sensors, if you want individual cell voltage, it may be possible to use a FLVS-01 in combination with your FVAS-02H or you just do what rdeanchurch suggest with a voltage divider.

Re: Introduction to the openx vario/altimeter

Hi,

The boot loader should be already installed in your board, you just need to use the upload button in the arduino IDE to flash your program.
I suggest you to read a little more about arduino, there's a bunch of informations around the web, begin with http://arduino.cc/.
